Jackie Walorski is a lifelong Hoosier born and raised in South Bend.
Jackie has dedicated her career to helping Hoosier families. As the daughter of an Air Force Veteran and South Bend Firefighter, Jackie learned the value of public service at a young age. Her parents also established a family-owned appliance repair shop, teaching Jackie the challenges and fulfillment of operating a small business.
Jackie attended Riley High School and graduated with a BA from Taylor University. As her first job out of college, she worked as a reporter for WSBT-TV, covering community issues ranging from education to crime. Inspired to get more involved in the education system, Jackie later worked as a Development Director for local colleges and universities to improve educational access for Hoosier students.
In 1995, she married her husband Dean, a Mishawaka schoolteacher and jazz musician. Shortly after, the couple moved abroad to Romania for 4 years, founding their own agency and local foundation to help provide much-needed medical supplies to the country’s impoverished children.
Jackie is grateful to serve the people of Indiana’s Second District in the 113th Congress, where she serves on the House Armed Services, Budget, and Veterans’ Affairs Committees. She is honored to serve the brave men and women of our Armed Forces in many ways, including improved support for our nation’s veterans. Using some Hoosier common sense, Jackie welcomes the opportunity to work across the aisle to get our fiscal house in order and create American jobs.
Jackie currently resides in Jimtown with her husband Dean, mother Martha, and their 3 dogs.
